Beethoven's 5th Symphony Opening Classical

The opening notes to Beethoven's symphony are Morse Code for "V". The BBC during WW II would open each radio show with these music notes symbolizing a belief in Victory. Churchill would don with his hand two fingers to bring the allies together, a V.

The 5th symphony is synonymous with classical music. The simply rhythm naturally delights people. Little known, Americans buy more classical recordings than do Europeans.
